    Default Italian Helmet(Real Or Fake?)

    Hey guys, I know this isnít the right forum for this post, but I was not able to find a forum for Italian Militaria. I found this helmet at an Antique store, and J wanted to find out if itís real. Iím planing on putting it in my collection, and I have no intention on selling it. It is in pretty relic condition, but I like it this way. I just want to know if itís real or not, and when it could have been used. Thank you!

    As noted in your other thread......

    "Looks like one to me. But don't think it is worth $50.

    Edit: On second thought.....the rivets seem a bit low. Maybe the angle of the photo?

    Check out this thread and compare"

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Yeah I think it’s the angle it was taken. It was taken at a diagonal downwards angle, so it looks like everything looks lower. Thank you for your help

    I just checked you thread and it looks to be the M33/47 helmet. The rivets on the M33/47 are also a little low. Tell me what you think

    As MementoMori said, it is a M33 first production, mid 30s with rivet/air vents like this:

    They were initially distributed during the Spanish War, but they continued to be used even after the stocks ended, despite the problems generated by this type of rivets, which easily loosened.
